Few would agree with me and maybe it was a lack of players he could work with but Eriksen with all the assists and everything recycled the ball a lot.I like the way Ndombele sees the space ahead and hits it.If course it's more risky but he has the confidence where Eriksen recycles and hits the pass when it's there. So sometimes it's a slower process.He takes a safer route though which is not bad either.He (we) would be better for players on a similar wavelength to Lamela. as he is a player with a picture of what's around him and when the space/movement is there he can find those 1-2's and balls around the corner, unfortunately we have too many that slow it down with 5-6 touches before doing anything, and our movement is slow and predictable, making Lamela more reliant on dribbling and trying to commit defenders which he is hit and miss at.
If Lamela was more creative and had more substance would we need Lo Celso?
Eriksen was the man. We needed players to control the attack nor Lamela or Dele really took hold of a game.Just flashes.
